The Story of Bottled Water


Steps toward Sustainability tainability2.pdf

The Sustainability Director of the University of California-Davis ran across my ACS 'Story of Bottled Water' presentation and wanted to create a display in the Student Union using my water bottles and slides. Thanks to him, I was able to clear out some space in my basement.


The attached video (m4v) of this display was appended to this post on July 19, 2015.
